Storyline

Call-girl Sarah Marshall kills herself on a beach, after stealing the car belonging to a man she had tried to contact, David Carn, popular DJ with Bristol radio station Radio West. Station boss Don Satchley asks private detective Eddie Shoestring to investigate any incriminating links between Carn and Sarah. Eddie is approached by a man named Willis, who tries to buy him off and is then beaten up by Willis's boss Barry Hendry. It is clear to Eddie that they are protecting one of Sarah's clients - not David Carn - and he must find out who. Written by don @ minifie-1
